Good morning everyone. There are many of us who are in the position of waiting on an answer from God on a promise. Today we are going to be fed by what I have learned in my spiritual walk about waiting. I have shared this info before over the years and it still rings true because God is the same yesterday, today and forever more.


Father, There are many people who work in positions where they must take care of mentally or physically sick people and those who must teach and care for others. In some cases, these very important caretakers are under pressure to rush, to be more concerned with the “bottom line” than with the souls they touch. I pray for wisdom, courage, peace, protection, and special anointing upon these special ministers in our world today. Please watch over them, keep the doors of opportunity open for them, and work through them to make a difference in the lives they touch, as well as in the lives of those for whom they work or to whom they report. Thank you, Lord, for committed teachers and caretakers, whether in the home, school, or medical professions. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.

Let’s eat.


By day the Lord went ahead of them in a pillar of cloud to guide them…. – Exodus 13:21

How are you at waiting on God? How do you determine if God is giving you the green light to move forward? Many believers make the mistake of adding up all the pluses and then concluding that God has given them the green light. Several factors go into making a decision from the Lord.

It’s important to do three things before you make a decision on a matter. First, you should gather facts. Fact gathering allows you to determine all the realities of a given situation. However, this does not ultimately drive your decision, but it can put a stop to it. For instance, if you were planning to build a shopping center and you knew the only way to lease the space was to rent to a porn shop, your decision would be made. God would not lead you to enter into unrighteous ventures.

Secondly, is the Holy Spirit guiding you in your decision? “If the Lord delights in a man’s way, He makes his steps firm” (Psalms 37:23). God puts hedges around us, but many times we bull our way through the hedges under the guise of tenacity and perseverance. This too is unrighteousness. A wise believer once stated that the greatest success one can have in business is to know when it is time to pull the plug rather than keep forcing a situation. Not all businesses last forever.

Thirdly, has your decision been confirmed? God has placed others around us to be used as instruments in our lives to confirm decisions and keep us from the deceit of our own heart. “Every matter must be established by the testimony of two or three witnesses” (2 Corinthians 13:1). This is God’s way of keeping us within the hedge of His protection.

“Write your plans in pencil and give God the eraser.”


Jesus was God and man in one person, that God and man might be happy together again.
